-Publisher

This is a completely revised and expanded edition of a classic text. Drawing on recent work on legal and didactic material and including more literary interpretation, Blenkinsopp traces the course of two related key traditions--law and wisdom--throughout the history of Israel in the biblical^period. He demonstrates their essential lines of continuity with classical Jewish thought and early Christian theology.
